Sometimes, you hear dark stories about how cancer stops you from doing what you love. Fresh out of surgery, Nell had the same thoughts. But then it dawned on her how pointless it is to think that life has come to an end. Instead, she’s got a new lease on life, and it is only just beginning. Listen to her journey of self-discovery on achieving what cancer warriors and survivors can do even when others say otherwise.
